New Computer Chips That 'See' Data Will Enable Energy-Efficient Supercomputers
"Drawing inspiration from how mammalian brains process sight, researchers have found a way to mimic the functions of biological neural networks on a next-gen "memristor" chip."

Quantum Data Storage in a Single Atom Brings New Computing Era Closer to Reality
"In a big step forward, physicists achieved the first-ever demonstration of storing and retrieving quantum data from the nucleus of a solitary atom embedded in silicon."

Jumping Droplets Whisk Away Hotspots in Electronics
"Engineers have developed a technology to cool hotspots in high-performance electronics using the same physical phenomenon that cleans the wings of cicadas. When water droplets merge, the reduction in surface area causes the release of a small amount of energy. So long as the surface beneath is hydrophobic enough to repel water, this energy is sufficient to make the merged droplet jump away."


Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
